'Mill Leat' shown on 1880s 25" OS map running southwest from a 'Weir' on a diversion from the 'River Thrushel' at SX46058959 via a 'Sluice' to 'Patchill Mill'.

Summers, P., 1985, Untitled Source (Personal Comment). SDV246292.

Leat to Patchill Mill. This leat took a long southerly course below Patchill Farm, probably leaving the River Thrushel at SX46378976. It was superceded by the northerly leat (PRN 24878) because it was difficult to maintain.
